While the year isn’t specifically stated, you can assume it’s been a few hundred years since the people of Earth took off in their spaceships they now call home. That’s a long time in space, and […]

Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Beauty and Beastly by is a steampunk retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast. I love this twist on the original! It is unlike anything I’ve ever read. The clockwork, steam powered Beast is a heartbreaking, yet charming character that was easy to see why the MC would fall for him. Set during 1814 […]

WoW #170 – Rebelwing

Happy Wednesday y’all! I’m eagerly waiting on ‘s Rebelwing. I first came across this book on a Goodreads list for 2020 new releases. The title caught my attention and the blurb hooked me.
